NV4500 flange very close to front driveshaft

Final stages of buttoning up the build after 3 years.

I installed front driveshaft and it has about 1/8th inch clearance from lower rear tab on NV4500 case. Worried as suspension flexes it may hit.

Anyone?

Do you have a picture?

What diameter shaft are you running? Or is it almost hitting the double cardan, not the tube? My brother ran into a similar issue with his front shaft and his 4L60e trans in his Toyota and had to have a custom, small diameter shaft made for clearance...pretty sure he had High Angle Driveline make it with an extra long slip.

You're making me nervous, but maybe with an ATLAS it won't be an issue...fingers crossed for me.

Did you know that 95% of all statistics are made up on the spot?
